I have a couple of cochin/EE mixes that just started laying last Monday and this Friday. There's been an egg in the nest from both of them since the first egg. I couldn't be more tickled! I have 4 more to start any day now.
No, not really. I just got my first egg one week ago.
So far, just one of my three pullets is laying. Dominique laid one every other day (Wed, Fri and Sun) and now she is dropping one a day (Mon, Tues, Wed)! Day light is getting shorter each day...I hope my other two pullets contibute soon.
I'm glad you asked, Cybercat. I was just wondering about the same thing. Mine are due to start laying any day now. I can hardly wait! I don't know what the egg song is yet, but I'm sure I'll be finding out soon.
I have one hen who has been a steady layer for about 4 weeks and another hen of the same age who has only laid one egg and that was 2 weeks ago but nothing since. I have been worried about it but it sounds like that is not totally abnormal.
Glad to hear someone else has had that experience.
